After pictures surfaced on the Gizmodo site, a search of a Gizmodo editor’s home and computer was issued. Attorneys and co-hosts, J. Craig Williams and Bob Ambrogi welcome Sam Bayard, the Assistant Director of the Citizen Media Law Project and Eric Goldman, Director of the High Tech Law Institute at Santa Clara University School of Law, to discuss the legal issues behind this complex debacle. They look at the shield law, the validity of the search warrant and the legal battle that could possibly lie ahead.
